This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Bitter in the Mouth
By Monique Truong
Publication Date: August 31
Growing up in the small town of Boiling Springs, North Carolina, in the 70s and 80s, Linda believes that she is profoundly different from everyone else, including the members of her own family. Now in her thirties, Linda looks back at her past when she navigated her way through life with the help of her great-uncle Harper, who loves her and loves to dance, and her best friend Kelly, with whom Linda exchanges almost daily letters. For as long as she can remember, Linda has experienced a secret sense—she can “taste” words, which have the power to disrupt, dismay, or delight. Even as Linda makes her way north to Yale and New York City, she still does not know the truth about her past.Then, when a personal tragedy compels Linda to return to Boiling Springs, she gets to know a mother she never knew and uncovers a startling story of a life, a family.
